Julie is a late-diagnosed Autistic speech-language pathologist who has been practicing for over 20 years. Therapist Neurodiversity Collective was founded by Julie in January 2018 to support her vision to serve Autistic and other Neurodivergent people and their families by providing free access to a worldwide directory of credentialed and licensed pro-neurodiversity-focused therapists, and to advocate for changes in therapy practices to reflect the use of methodologies and models which presume competence, are non-trauma inducing, and respect human rights, dignity, and sensory preferences. Throughout her career, she has served in various healthcare settings with both pediatric and adult populations and has held key healthcare leadership positions, including National Field Director of Corporate Compliance, and Multi-state Regional Clinical Director for the nation’s largest provider of rehab post-acute care.
